Did you getÂ your “I Voted” sticker yet? Today, Americans are heading to the polls en masse to vote in what has been a tight raceÂ for the next President of the U.S. But you don’t need to stay up to all hours of the night to wait for election results. A psychic goat in ScotlandÂ named Boots has already predicted the winner, according to Scottish newspaper The Scotsman. In a reading, the Golden Guernsey goat from a farm inÂ Roxburghshire predicted Hillary Clinton willÂ be America’s next Commander in Chief.
Now, this was all done very officially, of course. Boots was presented with two pieces of paper: one with Clinton’s name on it and one with Trump’s. When the 3-year-old psychic goat was let loose by his handler to make his choice, he chose Clinton with little hesitation. (Although, to be fair, he also gave the Trump paper a nibble.) Boots’ predictionsâ€”such as the outcome of the Brexit voteâ€”have been correct in the past, so we’ll see if this reading proves accurate. There is, after all, a monkey in China that has predicted Donald Trump as the winner, so tonight could go either way.
Moral of the story: Don’t depend on animals to call this election. Go vote!
